(PRWEB) August 29, 2003

Research and Markets have announced the addition of the “Health Foods Market Report Plus 2003” report to their offering.

The value of the health food market covered in this report amounted to £2.08bn in 2002. This represented an increase of just over 10% on the 2001 figure, compared with considerably higher growth rates during the previous 2 years. The four key sectors consist of organic foods; functional foods; vitamins, minerals and supplements (VMS); and alternative remedies.

The slowdown was most marked in the organic and functional foods sectors, both of which have previously experienced unusually high growth, and are displaying some signs of maturation. The VMS sector has been growing slowly, while sales of natural remedies have continued to increase at a steady rate.

The prospect of European legislation has affected, or will affect, most sectors of the health food market in various ways, and has already taken up considerable resources, as manufacturers and retailers fight to make sure their views are properly represented. Arguably, the most urgent issue concerns the Food Supplements Directive, which covers ingredients and dosage levels in vitamin and mineral preparations, and is due to come into force in July 2003. A report from the Food Standards Agency, published in 2003, indicating that high doses of some vitamins and minerals could be harmful will deal a further setback to the specialist health foods industry.

On the corporate front, much of the activity during 2002 has indicated that it is the larger specialist companies that are in the best position to capitalise on the health foods market as it is at present. A number of large mainstream companies have scaled back their operations in health food sectors, while at the other end of the range there have been several acquisitions of small specialist companies by larger ones.

The current uncertainty in the market for vitamins, supplements and natural remedies is likely to have a negative effect on future sales, at least in the short term. Sales of organic food have begun to slow down as the market matures, while the market for functional foods will continue to grow at a steady, but unexceptional, rate.

Whole Foods Market CEO, John Mackey, Endorses New Book, ?The Self Health Revolution?

Whole Foods Market CEO, John Mackey, Endorses New Book, “The Self Health Revolution”













The Self Health Revolution


(Vocus/PRWEB) March 10, 2011

The notable Whole Foods founder has “enthusiastically” endorsed J. Michael Zenn’s controversial book that some critics say makes some bold claims. Here is a sample of a few of Zenn’s zingers: “Medical Care is the #3 killer in America”, “Almost all meat served in America contains feces”, “The average doctor makes a diagnosis in only 30 seconds”, “Drugs taken as prescribed kill more than prostate cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined”, “Half of all men will get cancer and most people already have cancer”, ”35% of all children will be diabetic” and so forth.

Zenn, recently appearing on CBS News, staunchly claimed all of the facts in the book, although surprising, are soundly sourced and well researched.

Not leaving anyone out of this brow-raising book, Zenn blames a blind reliance on the federal government (FDA), big food companies, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical community at large as the simplistic, core cause of our failing health and medical care woes. He makes shocking and surprising claims throughout the book to back up this thesis. He points the reader to the 100 or so references in the back of the book and implores them to research the data for themselves.

Whether you buy Zenn’s revved-up rhetoric or not, this short, power-packed, little book, surprisingly produces a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping, laugh-out-loud read. In short, Zenn attempts to convincingly persuade the reader they must seize control of their health now (Self Health) by taking a few, utterly-simple, 15-minute steps to lose weight, escape pain, ward off disease and recapture the energy lost in their youth.

John Mackey, the Chief Executive Officer & Co-founder of Whole Foods Market, exuberantly endorsed the book saying:

“J. Michael Zenn has written a wonderful book…What we need to do is to wholeheartedly embrace the principles of healthy eating and healthy living outlined in ‘The Self-Health Revolution’. I enthusiastically recommend this book!”    

Mackey started with one store in 1980 and built Whole Foods Market into a $ 9 billion, Fortune 500 Company and a “Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For” winner every year since the contest’s inception in 1998. With over 300 stores and roughly 60,000 employees, Whole Foods Market is one of the top 10 supermarket companies in America and the largest and most recognized natural and organic foods retailer in the world. Mackey has garnered numerous awards and recognitions and was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2003. Mackey is a strong supporter of free market economics and is one of the most influential advocates in the movement for organic food in the world.

For those who would like to find it, J. Michael Zenn’s controversial book can be purchased at SelfHealthRevolution.com, Amazon.com, Whole Food Markets, and various other health food and retail book stores. Zenn was most recently featured on CBS News with Sandra Mitchell (Emmy award winning journalist and news anchor). Nearly one million viewers tuned in to watch his first televised interview.

Zenn will soon be embarking on a major media and book signing tour and will be featured on several upcoming prime-time radio and TV shows throughout the country.

Here’s a little taste of more of Zenn’s claims and revelations from the book:


The one hidden ingredient found in our food that’s causing us to get 40% fatter
3 simple, 15-minute steps you can do to get fit and stay thin forever
A forgotten remedy that will get rid of aches and pains forever
The little known reason most people feel tired and run down
One thing that you can do now to extend your life by 15 years
Discover one ingredient that will instantly add vigor and passion to your sex life
Why everyone probably already has cancer; why 50% of all men and 35% of all women are now being diagnosed with cancer and how to avoid it
How to reverse your chronological age by 10 years
The shocking # 3 killer that that virtually no one knows about
Why this generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents and the reason 1 out of 3 of our kids born today are destined to be obese and diabetic
How Michael Zenn lost 60 lbs and 7 pant sizes by eating more food than he ever had before
